The thesis of this paper is that the solution to the world’s hunger crisis is not, simply, to increase production, try and curb the world’s population growth, and deal with the periodic food shortages and famines by giving food, technology and trade assistance. After having done extensive research, I have concluded that hunger in the world today is caused by the means of production and by the unjust structures of distribution in the modern, capitalist, agricultural system. It is my conviction that hunger is structured into the current means of food production and distribution and that hunger will only be alleviated when these structures are radically changed. If we simply, as we have been doing over the past decades, focus on increased production and leave distribution to the free market, without paying adequate attention to who in the world has control both over the means of production%2
